Deadly Misadventures

For many explorers, it was a race to see which expedition would be the first to chart and reach the Earth’s Magnetic South Pole. A conquest finally accomplished by the Nimrod Expedition in 1909. A member of that team, 26-year-old Sir Douglas Mawson also held that honor and place in history. A few short years later Mawson would lead his own expedition team back to that icy coastline, hoping to conduct scientific research and chart new areas.
